The Heartsaver First Aid with CPR and AED Training Course teaches rescuers to effectively recognize and treat adult emergencies in the critical first minutes until emergency medical services personnel arrive. The course provides a complete health and safety solution for First Aid, Adult CPR and AED. The student will learn how to recognize the signs of a sudden cardiac arrest, when to activate the EMS system, and how to do CPR. It's also important to become familiar with the AED and learn how to successfully operate it in an emergency. This training also teaches how to avoid potentially hazardous situations. There is a hands-on skill demonstration required to complete the course, but there is no written test. The First Aid component of the course prepares the participants to deal with injuries seen more frequently. This part of the course teaches the lay person to recognize and react to situations such as low blood sugar, bleeding, broken bones and sprains, seizures, strokes, insect bites and stings, and temperature related injuries.

Who should attend?
All will benefit from the hands-on skills learned in the small group learning environment. Anyone who is assigned to respond to emergencies in the workplace or community would benefit, as well as those who want to learn First Aid, CPR and AED skills. Some rescuers are required to take this course as part of their employer's efforts to comply with OSHA regulations.
